“It's just a lighthouse, nice looking but thats all.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Really not an attraction at all. You look when you pass but its hardly worth walking around it. If it wasn't in this completely horrible place it would be even less interesting.

“A must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Restaurants & shops are great here. Its clean & lively but not at all brash, & affordable food. Shops expensive, all designer led. Theres quirky cow statue's painted along the sea front & nice walk ways & gardens along the way.

“Exceptional and suggestive place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

El faro de Maspalomas is a very nice area. Walk along the small promenade and through the many little restaurants close to the beach.
I suggest to go to visit the desert area which is just about 300 mt from El Faro.
The whole area is really nice and clean. Restaurants are a bit more expensive than other parts of the Island, I presume because this area is targeted by many German tourists. There are luxurious hotels and restaurants. Streets and the beaches around are extremely clean.
